The ED initiated PMLA investigation on the basis of the FIRs lodged in Indore in case of illegal sale and alienation of the lands of housing co-operative societies by Madda in connivance with other builders and developers.
The ED said that these lands were usurped and were subsequently sold to various accused persons causing massive loss to the housing society and thus depriving its members from their rightful ownership of plots.
